Extend coverage of your home's WiFi with same WiFi name and security password as your router. Smart Roaming automatically connects your mobile devices to the best available WiFi as you move around your house.

The desktop design has four internal antennas that extend WiFi signals to where your router WiFi cannot reach.

AX6000 WiFi with combined speeds up to 6Gbps (4.8+1.2Gbps) extends Gigabit speeds throughout your home. The 160MHz Channel Support provides Gigabit WiFi connectivity speeds for compatible mobile devices and laptops, up to 2 times faster than standard 2x2 AC WiFi with 80MHz.

Eight WiFi spatial streams - four in the 2.4GHz band and four in the 5GHz band - offer four times the device capacity as compared to typical 2x2 AC WiFi. This results in a significantly improved network capacity and benefits the performance of all legacy devices.
